Play and Sync Android Apps on Your Windows Desktop

Android is one of the world’s most popular operating system for mobile phones. But unlike iOS, which also supports syncing of apps across other Apple devices, there is no Android OS for a PC. To use your Android Apps on Windows, Bluestack App player is a boon.

It is a software which comes with 10 preloaded Android apps and neatly works on your laptop or PC running Windows OS.


BlueStacks App Player Features

  • The BlueStacks Apps when installed, are pre-loaded with 10 free apps. It usually shows up on the right hand corner of your desktop by default.
  • Users can install upto 26 more apps and run them, getting a feel of how Android apps behave without actually using Android.
  • The best part is users can synchronize their apps from Android phone to Windows PC with BlueStacks Cloud Connect.

It is a great way to synchronize and use Android Apps on Windows, which was not really possible. If you have a Windows computer and Android phone or tablet, then this software is a must.

The video below explains the features of BlueStacks quite well.

Does it have access to Android Market Place? I have some experience of installing Android-x86 port from

It is smaller in size and I have tested it on Virtual Box. Works smooth except no access to Android Market Place but Amazon App Store is accessible. However, some apps like Adobe Reader, Firefox for Android, Opera Mobile refuse installation.

Worth a review from you, Aditya.
